£13.99 each

  • Will flower well in full sun
  • Attracts Bees

Blackthorn is a dense, spiny native deciduous hedging plant with masses of small white flowers on its dark stems in spring before the leaves appear. In autumn it produces blue-black fruits (sloes) which are particularly attractive to birds and are commonly used to make Sloe Gin. It makes a good security hedge.

Hedges within gardens create a softer, more wildlife friendly boundary and can provide a great seasonal display of flowers, berries and autumn colour. Even a small hedge can create your own little wildlife habitat. They can be close clipped or left a bit wilder, a mix of native varieties will give different periods of interest and a good nesting and winter food source for birds.

Planting distances vary from 30-60cm/1-2ft depending on the variety and the size of hedge required. For a denser hedge plant a staggered double row with 38cm/15in between rows and 45cm/18ins between plants.

All our hedging will be delivered as bare rooted bundles, with approximate height of up to 100cm/3.5ft depending on the variety
